Located in an historic London town house in central London, the Wallace Collection is a national museum featuring 25 galleries displaying works of the highest quality from every category of art represented.
It is possibly best known for its collection of paintings by artists such as Rembrandt and Hals, and for its eighteenth century French paintings, porcelain, furniture and gold boxes. Indeed the Collection holds one of the most important displays of French furniture anywhere in the world.
There is also an impressive display of medieval and Renaissance objects, including Limoges enamels, along with a notable collection of armour and arms.
The impressive sculpture collection consists of almost 500 pieces in various materials, dating from the Middle Ages to the nineteenth century.
The nearest tube stations are Bond Street (Circle, District, Hammersmith & City, Jubilee and Metropolitan Lines) and Oxford Circus (Bakerloo, Central, Victoria Lines) which make it very easy to reach from any of our London vacation rentals. The area is also very well served by bus.
